From the lowest parcels, with the deepest loam and clay. The coolest site with fastest draining.
Vibrantly red, with blue and purple glints. It has complex aromas of plum and ripe fruit, evoking dry fig. In the mouth it is velvety and long, with a rich aftertaste, full of fine, sweet, ripe tannins.
Excellent when paired with red meats, pasta with spicy sauces, matured cheeses.

"From Mendoza, Argentina, the 2014 Malbec Clasico is 100% Malbec and exhibits a deep ruby/purple color and floral nose intermixed with blackberry and cassis. It offers good ripeness, terrific fruit in the mouth, velvety tannins and a long, persistent finish. This is a beauty and an excellent value. Drink it over the next 3-4 years."
